Tributes for

Casey, Mary Kinuko

Mary Kinuko Casey, was born Kinuko Omagari in Maizaru, Japan on August 21, 1930. Her life in Japan during World War II, instilled values such as strength, dignity, humility, and kindness. In her humble nature, she never spoke of love - she simply lived it and WAS love.

She had converted to Catholicism in Japan, drawn to the Christian faith for many reasons, one of which was the uplifting music. Her beautiful voice became so familiar and always had an enriching effect on those around her.

She came to the United States in 1957 with the Brown family and within 2 years married Francis M. Casey at the Maryknoll Mission in Los Angeles, CA. A true love story, they remained married for almost 54 years.

Mary had 6 children in 8 years and proudly raised them with her amazing grace. Her unending love nurtured a tight family bond and her family always felt truly blessed and proud that she was a part of their lives. She had a special connection to everyone in her life. Her unconditional love and non judgmental way transcended in her life and was the attraction for many to want to know her and love her.

Mary quietly suffered from Congestive Heart Failure and after two years peacefully passed away on February 11, 2013. Mary is survived by her husband Francis, children Michael, Rita, Barbara, Ann and Vincent; grandchildren Treana, Patrick, Meganne, Ryan, Sean, Joaquin and Sofia; and great grandchildren Billy and Casey. She has joined her first born Timothy with our Heavenly Father.

She will always be honored and remembered and her unending love will live on in each of us.
